Trade Ortiz or Beltre?

Postby sweettortilla » Sun Apr 28, 2013 2:35 pm

I play in a 10-team CBS H2H points league. I have Ortiz in my DL slot and I'm going to have to move him to active this week.

As you can see, I've got Beltre as DH and Miggy at 3B. Naturally, Beltre will only be DH for me all year. And Ortiz can only play DH, so I am stuck with one of the two on the bench each week if I keep them both.

Should I try to move Beltre (starting to warm up after slow start) or Ortiz (hot start after injury)? And if so, where do you think I should look to upgrade. Roster below. Thanks! ;-D

C Gattis, Evan(C,OF) ATL
1B Howard, Ryan(1B) PHI
2B Murphy, Daniel(2B) NYM
3B Cabrera, Miguel(3B) DET
SS Tulowitzki, Troy(SS) COL

Move Ortiz. Catcher and/or 1b. I like Gattis, but could see him losing playing time. Hopefully, the Braves will find a way to get him 4-5 games/wk:

Figure 2-3 at catcher
1-2 at 1b/OF
some games at DH (in interleague games)

Agree here. Basically see which one yields you the best C or 1b for the what you were giving up.


Thoughts?
